Looks nice thumbsup

I don't even think you need to take the caliper off to paint it, looks like you have enough room to do it w/ it on the car.

I did mine when I had my GT. I just removed my wheel and masked off the stuff I didnt want to get pain on with masking tape and that was it. I think I put on 3 coats. It didnt mess up the drum either and still looks good to this day.

Take out the bolts that hold it on. There are 2 on the caliper, and 2 on the bracket.

The caliper holds the pads to the rotor. So take the pads out and just slide them back in. Once you start doing it, you will see that it is easy and very self explanatory. Its like a lego set, don't make it more complicated.

don't paint your drums red, that looks horrible.

just paint them black spineyes
